Re:Verse passage – Exodus 20:7 – (day seven)
Jesus’ name is as powerful as it gets. By His name we believe, we are baptized, we prophesy, we work mighty deeds, we heal, and we thrive. Jesus’ name is not an incantation though, it is a relationship. The sons of Sceva learned this lesson in Acts 19:
But also some of the Jewish exorcists, who went from place to place, attempted to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, “I adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches.” Seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. And the evil spirit answered and said to them, “I recognize Jesus, and I know about Paul, but who are you?”(Acts 19:13-15)
The authority of the Creator of the universe is bound up in His name that His children bear, may we cherish this relationship and live in the boldness of the name of Christ.
